He now feels Red Hat should lead the way "It should be part of Red Hat's job to define development in a new way, and get companies to work together" on shared projects, he said. The joint development projects would be designed to cover non-competitive parts of an industry, with individual companies still focused on their own competitive business applications. "We should also make sure we're involved in that," he said"Read more of this story at Slashdot.
